    Supercharger condition

    Hey all, have a few questions relating to a 2005 GTX ltd SCIC...

    Just purchased the ski few days ago and was just doing some general tidying up in engine bay. Thought id check the charger condition and was a bit uncertain what to think of this...

    The blades of the charger and the inlet had a white powder deposit all over them? i know the ski has been used in salt water, could this have anything to do with it? anything to be worrying about?

    Cheers in advance

    The white powder is just salt residue, boat most likely has taken on some water. What mods are you running?

    Spray some lube on it, and also the throttle body.

    Did you try to spin the blades while you were in there?

    yeah there was a little free play with the blades, not much mind?

    How many hours? I just pulled mine last night with 81 hours for inspection / washers and there is a bit of play in it. My dealer indicated "it's def time to go through it / rebuild it"
